As part of a Government initiative to take the city of Edinburgh into the future, Lothian buses teamed up with Icomera to give passengers using the city’s unified public transport network cutting-edge Internet connectivity while on the move.

The Challenge

  • Update the city’s transport network in conjunction with the “Super-Connected Cities” initiative
  • Improve the onboard passenger experience
  • Lead the way in UK transport

The Solution

  • High-speed connectivity for passengers
  • Easy to integrate with future technology
  • Supporting additional applications

The Results

  • Passengers receive vital connectivity on their journeys
  • Solution covers other applications to improve operational efficiency
  • Edinburgh receives the benefits of full cross-city transport Wi-Fi

Our View:

“Edinburgh is an excellent example of a city investing in its transport network to provide a top-quality experience to passengers. By deciding to roll-out Wi-Fi, passenger information, fleet tracking and other connected services, Lothian Buses has shown that they value not only innovation and safety, but also the needs of the hundreds of thousands of people who rely on public transport in Edinburgh every day.”
